    Whoa, dude.

    You know it's a foregone conclusion and don't want to waste time or energy complaining about it?

    I say when the future HOFer comes back he should be spared the indignity of batting any lower than cleanup.

    It's his game after all.

    When Rolen is in the lineup he will bat 6th, just as Frazier does now. On days when Frazier is in LF he will bat 7th.

    Considering in addition to the numbers the small fact that the run that has the Reds in first place coincides precisely with the self-removal of Rolen and his replacement with Frazier....well, there obviously is no justification.

    Rolen back in lineup? Simply sugar in the gas tank. Enjoy away.

    Sorry if this has already been mentioned (didn't see it anywhere), but Rolen was 1-3 last night with a single and a strike out for the Bats.

    Batting third in tonight's game which just got under way.

After the Cleveland series the Reds go on to play 17 straight with 11 of those coming on the road on the dreaded West Coast tour.

    Cincy needs to find out if Rolen has anything left, so he should play 3b at least 10 of those games with Frazier picking the other 7 at 3b and maybe another 6 in left. A healthy Scott Rolen would be a nice problem to have but the guy needs to be taken care of to get the most out of him. One thing for certain is our bench will be a lot stronger.
    I'm with you on the bench strengthening. IF Rolen can play 3B, that gives you Hiesey, Frazier, Stubbs, and Ludwick to share the other OF spots or bench duty.
    Valdez is playing for his baseball life and hanging in there. So, he too, becomes yet another option. Now if they can all get/stay healthy.....
